A point person has been designated for Hood River County community members to make donations of personal protective equipment for those responding to the COVID-19 epidemic. County Emergency officials say Dr. Chris Swisher is the contact person, his number is 909-499-1062. Call Swisher to find out how and when you can donate. The Hood River County Administration Building will be used as a collection point, but people should not just drop off donations. They need to call Swisher and find out the time each day to donate. Personal protective equipment that is unused, unopened, and in original packaging will be accepted. At this time donations of made-at-home PPE are not being accepted.
